Things to Remember When I’m Afraid

By |June 9th, 2014|

Once again another door has opened
Leaving me outside my comfort zone

Once again my mind is filled with fear,
Descending from my throne

But the thing I forget,
that I need to remember
I’m a daughter of the King

There is power piercing through my veins,
So let the victory bells ring

Sinners, they let their voices be heard
They represent the worst

So why […]

Bloodshot Eyes

By |February 25th, 2012|

I look in the mirror

I see bloodshot eyes

On account of sleepless nights

and intermediate cries

To this season I’d like to say my goodbyes

 

In the Bible it says, for everything there is a season

And I have to believe this is all for a reason

 

But right now all I want to do is runaway

Find myself in a brighter […]

I Surrender

By |February 22nd, 2012|

I raise my hands up

I reach out to you

No more trying to figure it out

No more wondering what to do

 

I surrender all

I surrender it all to you

My circumstance, my situation

I’ll trust in you to guide me to a resolution

 

I will take it moment by moment

One step at a time

Wait for your answers

In the right time

 

I […]

Glimpse

By |January 9th, 2012|

If this is what I can accomplish

with the strength and courage I lack

I wonder the things I could do,

if I didn’t let fear hold me back

 

What if I no longer fed my fears and doubts?

Fed my faith instead

How much further would I be ahead

 

What dances I’d dance

What songs I’d sing

What poems I’d write

If I freed […]

Protect You

By |January 4th, 2012|

Do you know how much

I want to protect you

Keep you safe all the time

Protect you from all the bad things in the world

Crime, slime and grime

 

I want to baby proof your whole life

Protect you from hurt, pain and strife

 

I want to catch you every time you fall

Be there whenever you call

 

Fly to your rescue like […]

My God

By |February 17th, 2010|

I cried

He wiped my tears

 

 

I screamed

He heard my fears

 

I fell to my knees

He picked me up

 

I spilled my water

He refilled my cup

 

I closed my heart

He opened it up

 

I lost my will

He gave it back

 

I was alone

He stayed with me

 

I was cold

He put his loving arms around me

 

I was going too fast

He slowed me down

 

I was […]
